     I was tired of typing the URLs of my projects into the address-field of Internet Explorer. I wanted to start them directly from the Explorer (or Windows Commander), like any other file. This tool is able to run ASP files that where opened in the Explorer. IIS is being searched for the specified file and an URL is passed to the web browser. Due to the fact that the browser gets passed a URL, the Active Server Page is being processed on the server before you see it. You need MS Visual C++ 6 to compile the project. Contact me if I should e-mail you a compiled executable. Usage: BrowseASP.exe [MachineName] [FileName] i.e. BrowseASP.exe Axl "d:\projects\my files\1.asp" Be sure to add quotation marks if you want to link BrowseASP with ASP files in the registry: BrowseASP.exe axl "%1"

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
